We are accredited to AS/NZS 60335.2.21 'Household and similar electrical appliances' which includes Electric Tanks, Boilers and Hot Water Heater Compliance Testing.
Hot water tanks/boilers or water heaters are deemed to be prescribed/declared an electrical household type equipment and must be tested to an applicable Standard to ensure electrical safety approval.
All electrical products sold or supplied in Australia must be electrically safe as required by the 'Electrical Safety Regulations', and meet the requirements of AS/NZS 3820. Normally, a product must meet the applicable relevant Australian Standard, or where no product standard is applicable, AS/NZS 60335.1 and/or AS/NZS 3100 can be used as a basis of assessment to prove a product is safe and complies with the essential requirements of AS/NZS 3820. Comtest is accredited for testing to both these standards.
As part of the testing, Comtest can also provide the appropriate IPX4 testing.
